Hello,
I have got some text with UTF-8. For example this part:
> <title>Παράλληλη αναζήτηση</title>

How to decode it to get this result?
> <title>Παράλληλη αναζήτηση</title>

I have tried functions like "decode", "byUTF", "to!wchar"... but no success.

Input string is correct - checked it with "https://www.browserling.com/tools/utf8-decode".

This looks like a UTF-8 sequence which has been UTF-8 encoded.

Undo the second UTF-8 encoding by transcoding the UTF-8 into an 8-bit character set (latin1, windows-1252 etc.) which you have to guess.

```decode.d
import std.stdio;
import std.encoding;

void main ()
{
   string src = "<title>Î\u00a0αράλληλη αναζήτηση</title>";
   Latin1String ls;
   transcode (src, ls);
   string targ = cast (string) ls;
   targ.writeln;
}
```
$ ./decode
<title>Παράλληλη αναζήτηση</title>
